Jury Has Reached Verdict in El Chapo Case: GUILTY

Guilty on all counts…that’s the verdict from the panel of eight women and four men in the El Chapo trial.
Most of the counts he was found guilty of were for distributing specific quantities of cocaine on specific dates — that the panel members had to assess one by one.

The jurors had been deliberating for six days in the Brooklyn courtroom.
They combed through 200 hours of testimony, dozens of boxes of evidence and instructions from the judge, asking legal questions several times.

Joaquin El Chapo Guzman, the reputed leader of Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel, faced ten charges of drug conspiracy and money laundering.
The 61-year-old Guzman was extradited to the U.S. in 2017 and now faces life in prison without parole.
